It's probably good that it is right across from this beautiful lake, because this DQ was not very good on this particular night. I was not there because of the beach.
I went there at about dusk, and it is only about 50 degrees, but there were other people at the beach this night. There was a young couple walking and holding hands, and there was a pedophilish looking overweight adult on the swings, killing time. There was even a few people fishing off the dock.
This DQ has a drive thru and an enormous parking lot and quite a bit of outdoor seating. Nice place.
The boy who took my order seemed a bit rushed. He tossed together a small, mis-shaped, over-marshmellowy mess of a small cone and practically dashed away to do something I couldn't see. My guess is that it was an off day on many counts and that a visit this weekend would give me a perfectly normal cone. But this is my blog and they only get one shot since they won't be in the running for best DQ.
The prices break down like this:
Small Vanilla Cone: $1.69
Peanut Buster Parfait: $4.09
Overall, prices are above average. The aggregate cost for one each is over $10.00--less than 30% of the stores reviewed so far cost more than $10.00 for one each of the review items.
Just to compare: Blaine (Hwy 65) charges only $8.05 for three cones and a PBP. Lake Josephine DQ charges $10.36.
Shop wisely, and avoid panic buying.
